On 'Louie' (Thu., 10:30PM ET on FX) this week Louis C.K. used his stand-up act to give his opinion on one of the most famous characters in U.S. literature: Huckleberry Finn.
Unlike Tom Sawyer, who's "a nice kid," Huck Finn is "a dirty little homeless, little white-trash creep" who just won't quit dropping the n-bomb.
Explaining Huck's unacceptable language choices to his daughters, Louis could have told them how and why language mores change over the years, but instead he did what many dads do when having awkward conversations with their daughters.
He took a short cut. He simply summed up Mark Twain's most famous characters in one sentence: "These boys are racists and are not nice boys."
